The newlyweds will “set the record straight about their relationship, and how they fell in love.”

“Red Table Talk” returns Wednesday with a new episode featuring Niecy Nash and her wife Jessica Betts. 

In the episode, Nash opens up about her relationship trajectory from two previous marriages, both to men, “to falling in love with a woman,” according to a statement issued by makers of the show. In a teaser released on Facebook, Nash also opens up about coming out to her kids about her relationship with Betts.

“My youngest daughter, she reminded me, “Wait a minute, Mom, are you the same mom who was like, ‘Girl, I’m strictly dickly!’” Nash recalls. “And I was like, ‘Yeah. Yeah, but no.’” 

Nash first came out publicly when she and Betts announced their marriage on social media last fall. Nash, who has starred in “Reno 911!,” “Selma,” and “Claws,” had previously been married to Jay Tucker and John Nash. 

The newlyweds will “set the record straight about their relationship, and how they fell in love,” according to the statement. 

Red Table Talk,” which airs on Facebook Watch, is hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow, and mother Gammy. The three generations of women and their guests discuss political and cultural issues relevant for the modern audience.The show is now in its fourth season. 

In Wednesday’s episode, Gammy also talks candidly about sexual fluidity, although notes that given how she was raised the notion had been somewhat taboo. “I’ve thought about, ‘Oh wow, a threesome might be really enjoyable,’ but just could never — you know, how I was raised with all that guilt and shame around sex, so I definitely didn’t have the freedom to consider it, as far as love is concerned” she says.  

To her admission, granddaughter Willow asks, ‘Are you expressing interest, Gam?’”

“I’ve always had an interest,” she replies. 

You can catch the season four premier featuring Nash and Betts on Facebook Watch Wednesday 3/31 at 12 p.m. E.T/9 a.m. P.T.
